PREFACE 

In 1858, Mr. Joseph Willard, of Boston (Number 313 in 
this genealogy), brought out a family history entitled '^ Willard 
Memoir, or Life and Times op Major Simon Willard: 
With Notices of Three Generations of His Descendants, 
AND Two Collateral Branches in the United States; 
Also Some Account of the Family in Europe, from an 
Early Day.'' 

He wrote very fully and entered into many details, making 
a book which will always be a treasure to the descendants and 
to the general students of Colonial History. 

The present work, though a sequel to the Memoir, has been 
constructed upon a different scale; it aims to give a view of 
the family at large, keeping in due proportion the several 
branches and individuals of the family, in the common fashion 
of approved genealogies. It has been necessary to condense 
and even to omit much that has been found in order to bring 
the work into the limits of a single volume; but every effort 
has been made to give the best items and in the fairest manner, 
so as to make the work a dehght and pride to the greatest 
number. It is much larger than we estimated. 

Several esteemed f amiUes are omitted because the connection 
of their lines with the stock of Simon and George could not 
be substantiated; and many individual records are impossible 
to place. These are given in the Appendix. 

That this genealogy has errors and omissions will be dis- 
covered, as in the case of every book whose contents have been 
gathered from such various and fallible sources. The editor 
has sometimes had conflicting accounts from members of the 
same particular family, and has been obliged to arbitrate 
between them and the public records anent the case. All 
who have contributed materials have done so in the spirit 
of kindness and a desire to make real history; we ask patience

IV PREFACE 

and consideration from all readers, and suggest that there may 
be cases where some will think they see errors and by close 
examination will find that they are learning the facts from 
the book! 

We should like to mention with specifications the correspon- 
dents who have contributed valuable material; they are many 
and have been very helpful, too many to enroll here in suit- 
able fashion. But mention must be made of the part which 
has been taken by Miss Susanna Willard, daughter of the 
author of the Memoir, who has had a special interest in pro- 
moting this work; as the resident member of the Committee 
of Publication, she has contributed most generously of her time, 
service and means, bringing memoranda, cHppings and letters, 
gathered during many years, to help the fulness and value of 
the genealogy. 

To one and all who have contributed to the work the editor 
places on record his hearty thanks.

THE CONCORD SUBSCRIPTION 

Miss Susanna Willard, of the Publication Committee, is 
the possessor of a priceless document, the Agreement of Concord 
people in 1653 to pay a yearly contribution to ^Hhe college 
at Cambridge,'' now Harvard University. She permitted 
Mr. Henry H. Edes, of Cambridge, to have a copy made for 
a volume (xii) of the Reports of The Colonial Society of Massa- 
chusetts, and now Mr. Edes kindly allows us the use of the 
photogravure for Willard Genealogy. It shows Major Simon 
Willard's signature next to that of the pastor, Reverend Peter 
Bulkley. Mr. Edes also permits us to use the plain English 
copy which he made of the document and its signatures. 

The Committee would extend its thanks to The Colonial 
Society and Mr. Edes. 

An agreemt made and agreed vpon by the towne and Church 
of Concord concerning the Colledge att Cambridge,

WILLARD GENEALOGY 



WILLARD ANCESTRY IN ENGLAND 

Mk. Joseph Willard, while preparing the ^^ Memoir/' 
caused much investigation to be made to discover the 
early history of the family. Hon. John Dwight Willard 
joined in the search and they together accomplished 
much. The famous genealogist, Mr. Henry FitzGilbert 
Waters, voluntarily carried the matter still further, and 
as a result we have three generations positively proven 
before the American pioneers, Simon, George and 
Margery. The name is a very ancient one in Sussex and 
Kent, particularly, and the Memoir gives various notes 
about persons of the name from Walter Willard in 1208 
and William Willard, a provost of the city of Canterbury 
in 1218, down to the seventeenth century. The name 
was spelled with all the old English variety of spelling, 
as Wilard, Willard, Wyllarde, Wellarde, Wyllerde, etc. 
The social standing and occupations of the men were 
*^ yeoman, clothmaker, husbandman,^' etc. The coat 
of arms presented in the Memoir is one that was used 
by one of the Willard families of England after the set- 
tlement of New England, and may have come down to 
them from some ancestor who was also an ancestor of 
the American pioneers. There is no record of the grant- 
ing of any coat of arms to either of the persons known 
to be ancestors of the American family; but the coat is 
a pleasant memorial of English origin and relationship. 

I. Richard Willard, of Brenchley, yeoman, made his 
will September 18, 1558, and it was proved October 24, 
following. He names sons Robert, Alexander, George, 
Richard, Andrew, Symon, Thomas and William, and 
daughters Alice and Agnes.

Z WILLARD GENEALOGY 

See notes upon this will on page 63 of the Memoir. 
Mr. Waters (page xiv) believes this Richard was grand- 
father, not father, of III, Richard Willard. He quotes 
a will of Andrew Willard in 1562 who mentions brothers 
William and George and sons Thomas and Richard, 
tokens that he was one of the sons of Richard above. 
Then he gives an abstract of the will of 

II. Symon Willarde, of Gowthurst, co. Kent, yeoman, 
February 6, proved February 26, 1584; wife Elizabeth, 
sons Thomas and Richard, daughters Thomasine and 
one who had married Mr. Bolde and had children; a 
messuage in Horsemonden, purchased of Richard Ever- 
enden, etc. 

Elizabeth, widow of Symon Willard, buried at Horse- 
monden April 12, 1587, appears to be the wife mentioned 
in this will. The towns of Goudhurst, Brenchley and 
Horsemonden adjoin and a man often held lands in two 
or all three of the townships. This makes it a proba- 
bility amounting almost to certainty that Symon's son 
Richard is the 

III. Richard Willard, of Horsemonden,* co. Kent, 
yeoman, who made his will February 12, 1616, which 
was proved before Edward Pope, vicar general, March 8, 
1616. He bequeathed to the poor of Horsemonden, to 
his wife Joan, to her son Francis Morebread; to his son 
George Willard six silver spoons and a silver and gilt 
cup, to be delivered to him after his mother^s death;; 
to his four daughters, Mary, Elizabeth, Margery and 
Catherine, his household stuff excepting that bequeathed 
to his wife; to his son Richard Wyllard the income from 

* horsemonden is a small parish in the Weald of Kent; it is de- 
scribed in Edmund Hasted's six-volume "History of the County of Kent/^ 
published in 1798, Vol. V, pp. 280, 281, 310-322. W. H. Ireland, in his 
four-volume "New and Complete History of the County of Kent," London,, 
1829, also writes about the parish in Vol. Ill, pp. 236-239. Both these 
authors spell the name of the place Horsemonden. Furley, however, in 
his "History of the Weald of Kent," Ashford, 1874, spells it Horsmonden, 
as the people of the parish commonly do today; yet he gives the meaning; 
of the word "Horseman's Valley." 



WILLARD ANCESTRY IN ENGLAND 6 

certain lands; to his daughter Ehzabeth a sum of money; 
to his kinsman Thomas Bolde some woodland; refers to 
his late brother Thomas Willarde, his brothers-in-law 
Thomas Humferie and Robert Goure and his son-in-law 
John TybouU; to his daughters Margerie and Catherin 
a barn, close, gardens and orchard which he bought of 
Wood; to his son Symon Willard all the rest of his messu- 
ages and lands when he shall come to age; directs that 
Symon be placed with some honest man where he may 
learn some good trade and be instructed; gave to son 
Richard Willard land purchased of Evenden and Payn- 
ter; and in case of Symon's death before reaching ma- 
turity, George was to have the lands bequeathed to him. 

John TybouU was appointed executor and was to sell 
certain estate and apply the proceeds toward the payment 
of debts and '^ the virtuous bringing up of his children/^ 

The full text of this interesting document is given on 
pages 53 to 58 of the Memoir. 

The registers of the parish of Horsemonden give us 
the baptisms of part of the children of Richard Willard; 
Margery, who married Dolor Davis* and came to New 
England, was baptized November 6, 1602; Simon, April 
7, 1605; and George, December 4, 1614. No records 
there tell of the marriage of either of these sons; the 
tradition that Simon's first wife was Mary Sharpe leads 
to an interest in the baptism of Mary, daughter of Henry 
and Jane (Feylde) Sharp, October 16, 1614, in the parish 
where Simon was born. 



♦ At East Farleigh, Kent, Mar. 29, 1624. 



FIRST GENERATION 

1. Major Simon ^ Willard, elder of the two brothers 
who founded the American Willard Family, was born 
at Horsmonden in the county of Kent, England, and 
baptized in the parish church there April 7, 1605. 

There is no record of his life there. His father, as we 
have seen, provided that he should be apprenticed to 
learn some trade or business, which was probably done; 
but his deeds and other documents on record do not 
specify any calling. It is probable that he had served in 
the army before coming hither, as he was appointed to 
drill soldiers here very soon after his arrival and called 
"a Kentish soldier" by a contemporary historian, Mr. 
Edward Johnson. He would seem to have married in 
England, but no record of the wedding has been found, 
nor of the birth of any child there. Rev. John Willard, 
D.D. (Number 131 post) in his manuscript history of 
the family, states with no quotation of authority that 
Major Willard married in England Mary Sharpe; Mr. 
Joseph Willard, in the Memoir, has worked out her 
history as daughter of Henry and Jane (Feylde) Sharpe, 
of Horsmonden, baptized October 16, 1614; that she 
came with him to this country and was the mother of 
at least one child before coming and several afterwards; 
that he married second Elizabeth Dunster, a sister of 
President Henry Dunster, of Harvard College, who died 
within a year, and that he married third Mary Dunster, 
cousin of Elizabeth, who survived him. Mr. Joseph 
Willard, in his Memoir, repeats and endorses this record 
in general, and quotes from a letter written to President 
Dunster by his father regarding the Dunster family. 
He also refers to President Dunster' s will, dated February 
18, 1658-9, in which he gave a legacy to '^my sister 
Willard and her children,'' and another to ^^my sister

Hills and her children born in this country.'^ At that 
date Mary was the wife of Major Willard, his third wife 
whom Rev. Dr. John Willard described as a cousin of 
the second wife, Elizabeth, sister of President Dunster. 
It has been reasonably suggested that President Dunster 
used the word '^sister'' because she had taken the posi- 
tion formerly occupied by his sister, and was the spouse 
of one whom he undoubtedly called ^^ Brother Willard.^' 
Examination of the registers of the parish of Bury, Lan- 
cashire, England, now printed, shows the Dunsters some- 
what numerous; we find the family of Henry, father of 
the President, and his other children, Robert, Richard, 
Thomas, Elizabeth and Alice, proving, by the names 
mentioned in the letter mentioned above, the identity of 
the family. Further, these registers reveal Mary Dun- 
ster, daughter of Robert and Mary (Gerrett) Dunster, 
baptized at Bury, December 15, 1630 — who must have 
been the third wife of Major Simon Willard. (N. B. — 
The word ^^ cousin" was used in that day to designate 
a nephew or niece as well as the child of an uncle or aunt.) 
Nowhere in the Bury register does the name of any 
Helen or Ellen Dunster appear, to fill the requirements 
of Joseph Hills' wife whom President Dunster called 
^'sister.'' She was married in Massachusetts as '^ Helen 
Atkinson," and what President Dunster said when be- 
queathing to ''her children born in this country" im- 
plies that she had been a mother before coming hither. 
Whether she was a sister of President Dunster or his 
wife or connected with them by some other means does 
not appear. But the Willard family are not concerned, 
inasmuch as the parentage of the wife of Major Simon 
Willard is made entirely clear. It would be extremely 
gratifying if some similar chain of evidence could be 
found to demonstrate the parentage and marriage of 
the first wife, known to have been a ''Mary," but only 
asserted to have been Sharpe. It is fair to say here 
that there is no mention in those Bury registers of any 
Dorothy Dunster, whom some have claimed as the bride of 
Major Willard's brother George. Faith Dunster was 



6 WILLARD GENEALOGY 

recorded, who came hither and married John Page, of 
Groton. 

Major Simon Willard came to this country in the 
spring of 1634. This is proved by the testimony of Mrs. 
EHzabeth Bacon, of Hartford, Conn., who testified in 
court there that she ^'arrived in New England in the 
month of May, 1634,'' and that ''Mr. Willard and others 
of good account were passengers in the same ship. 
This does not tell us whether he brought with him any of 
his family or not; it is simply inferred from his after his- 
tory that his wife and at least one child were with him; 
and it has also been thought probable that his brother 
George Willard came at that time; but there is no proof 
of these points. 

We know, however, that on the fourth of August, 
1634, ''Symon Willard'' had a grant of land at Cam- 
bridge, where he resided for a year; and that then, 
August 25, 1635, he sold that property and joined others 
in founding the plantation to which they gave the beau- 
tiful name of Con-cord (not conquered [conkerd] as it 
is often pronounced), home of agreeing men. 

They bought their lands of the Indians in 1636 and 
maintained good relations with them for long years. 
Major Willard was chosen representative to the General 
Court by the Concord freemen at their first election, in 
1636; was appointed to train the military company at 
once; continued in the General Court, performing eminent 
services on committees and other ways; was particularly 
successful as a member, usually chairman, of committees 
to whom were referred controversies between towns and 
certain groups of inhabitants, and questions about boun- 
daries between towns; he was in request for the laying 
out of grants of land and one of the commissioners who 
had supervision of the proceedings of Lancaster and 
some other towns in critical emergencies. He was a 
magistrate, chosen one of the ''Assistants," judges of 
the General Court, in 1654, and deputed to hold court 
in Hampton and Salisbury in 1666 and in Dover and 
York in 1675. 



>} 



FIRST GENERATION 7 

He was chosen '^Sergeant major" of Middlesex County 
in 1653; was commander-in-chief of the Narragansett 
expedition in 1654 and 1655. On the breaking out of 
the Indian horror known as ''King Philip's War," in 1675, 
he performed valiant service. 

In 1659 he sold his Concord homestead and removed 
to Lancaster; after some twelve years he again removed 
to Groton and built a house and other buildings, and 
enjoyed much in the fourth home he had made in Massa- 
chusetts. But in the progress of King Philip's War the 
town of Groton was attacked, and the savages burned 
Major Willard's house in March, 1675-6, so that he had 
uncertain dwelling-places for himself and his family from 
that time forward. But he went on in his service, direct- 
ing the movements of troops and relief expeditions, and 
bearing untold hardships and strain. This in his seventy- 
first year, too. 

The following month he was at Charlestown, probably 
resting awhile from his tremendous labors, when he was 
seized with an ''epidemic cold" and died April 24, 1676, 
having just passed his seventy-first birthday. He was 
probably buried there. 

The "Memoir" gives in a very full fashion most inter- 
esting particulars of all the events of his long life, on 
which this article merely touches. No will was offered 
for probate and probably none was made. An inventory 
of the large estate was filed a year later. The widow 
struggled to care for the younger children and had a 
difficult problem; for while the Major had left great 
landed possessions there was very little ready money. 
Her second marriage probably lightened her labors, and 
the children became self-supporting in due time. She 
was married July 14, 1680, to Dea. Joseph Noyes, of 
Sudbury, and died December 28, 1715, 85 years of age. 

By his first and third wives, it is believed, Major Willard 
had seventeen children. The town clerks failed to 
record the death of either the first or second wife or 
the marriage of either the second or third. Rev. Dr. 
John Willard's manuscript fails to tell which wife was 



8 WILLARD GENEALOGY 

mother of his own grandfather or of any other child of 
Major Willard. ''Child of Simon and Mary/^ the 
phrase of the clerks, does not tell us which Mary. After 
the death of Major Willard the widow Mary petitioned 
to the court for help, speaking of the special need of 
''six of her younger children," which may imply that 
she was mother of more than six.

2. George^ Willard, younger brother of Major Simon 
Willard, born at Horsmonden, Kent, England, baptized 
December 4, 1614; came to New England as early as 
the year 1638, and perhaps at the same time as his older 
brother, i.e., in 1634. We find no record of him any- 
where in the colony till the winter of 1638-9, when he 
was one of the citizens of Scituate, in Plymouth colony, 
who took the oath of allegiance, on the first day of Feb- 
ruary. That plantation was chiefly composed of men 
from Kent and their minister in the beginning was Rev. 
John Lothrop, who had been settled at Egerton in Kent, 
and, with his church, persecuted because they worshiped 
and lived in the manner taught in the New Testament. 
Before the date at which we find George Willard there 
the minister and part of the church had removed to 
found a new town — Barnstable, and Rev. Charles 
Chauncy was pastor at Scituate, one who taught that 
infants should be immersed when christened, a point 
which greatly stirred the community. Perhaps this was 
the cause of the trouble into which Mr. Willard got, for 
we find that he was called before the court May 3, 1641, 
and bound over to appear at the next term to answer for 
^^contemptuous words.'' His brother-in-law, Dolor Davis, 
was one of his bondsmen. The indictment ran that it 
was proved by the oaths of witnesses that he had said 
that ^Hhey were fools and knaves that paid the rate'' 
(the taxes); that ''the churches here and in the Bay 
(Massachusetts) did wrong in not baptizing their chil- 
dren"; that ''the Assistants (judges) did not take the 
oath of supremacy before entering upon their places," 
etc. The charges against Mr. Willard were not pushed; 



FIRST GENERATION 11 

he was released from his bonds and all went well. But 
soon a new church was formed in the town and a 
minister called who proved to be free from special notions 
and gathered a church of congenial spirits; a Congrega- 
tional church in faith and practice, as the first church had 
been, but a fellowship of some who had not been happy 
in the first parish. Into this new congregation Mr. 
George Willard entered, and it would appear from the 
prominence of his name in its baptismal records that he 
was one of the most active members.

The two children baptized September 14 were probably 
all that the Willard family then had. Joshua, baptized 
in November, was doubtless newly born when christened. 
No mention of any other child occurs. 

The town records do not mention George Willard or 
any of his family; nor does any contemporaneous record 
yet found give the name of his wife, mother of these 
children. Nor does any mention of him show itself in 
any Massachusetts records besides those quoted above. 

But in Maryland, home of real Christian liberty at 
that day, the man is found. One who was so free in 
expressing his opinions would be glad to join in such a 
colony; the business openings there were good; and 
communication by ship was easy. 

In the Land Records of Maryland, book A, B & H, 
there are entered the applications made by settlers for 
lands in accordance with the terms adopted by Lord

for the same; then a ^' warrant'^ or grant, and then a 
certificate of the survey of the land with bounds and metes.

In the Rent Roll book, 1650 to 1723 (of which two 
copies exist, one in the Land Office at Annapolis and the 
other, Lord Baltimore's personal copy, now owned by 
the Maryland Historical Society at Baltimore) the sur- 
name of the grantor is misspelled and his Christian name 
changed by a copyist to ^^ Jn°/' But the facts are stated 
correctly and the amount of the annual rent paid to the 
liege lord is given.

FIRST GENERATION 13 

^'Willard^s Purchase ^^ was in the present town of Not- 
tingham, Md. It was possessed, as this record shows, by 
Gabriel Burnham in 1707. It was first in Charles County, 
then fell within the bounds of Prince George's County 
when that was formed. (See article on Daniel, No. 12.) 

Only one deed of the ^'planter" is on record, a bill of 
sale of a cow, as printed in Maryland records: 

''These presents witness that I George Willard planter in Patuxet 
doe hereby alienate assign and make over unto Arther Wright planter 
of the same county one black Cow with a red calfe by her side with 
the said cow marked with a hole in the right eare and the hole sphtt 
out and the left eare whole with all and under the belly white, To 
have and to hold the said cow and calfe with all her future increase 
to him the said Arther Wright his executors administrators or assigns 
without ant let trouble or molestation of me the said George Willard 
executors administrators or assigns and from all person or persons 
whatsoever Shall hereby Warrant and defend the same and to make 
good the sale. Witness my hand this 12 July in the year of our Lord 
God 1653. George Willarde 

Teste John Hamilton 
Jno. Kale. 

This same black Cow hath a bob tayle and white upon the Rump." 

The records of Maryland have been searched in vain 
for any other token of our man till after his decease. 
Then the Probate Records have the following in the 
annals of the year 1656: 

"Whereas George Willard deceased is indebted by Account unto 
WilUam Stevens the summe of one hundred pounds of Tob. [tobacco] 
It is ordered that the said debt be satisfied out of the estate of the 
said Geo: Willard deceased." 

This account of Mr. George Willard has been based 
upon the editor's personal investigations in Massachu- 
setts and Maryland records and the libraries and collec- 
tions of Boston and Baltimore. It is disappointing that 
no more facts have come to light; but a few facts are 
better than many fancies. 

However, at Yarmouth on Cape Cod in Massachusetts, 
there appeared some years later two children of this 
man, who were identified as cousins of the Concord 
family by Rev. John Willard when he was teaching school 



14 WILLARD GENEALOGY 

there later, and came in contact with the children of 
one of them; that they came thither from Maryland 
was asserted; so that the evidence is complete. Then 
the appearance of Jacob Willard, the army surgeon in 
King Philip's War, tallies with the other records and 
gives cause for the hypothesis that he was another son 
of Mr. George Willard. The particulars will be given 
later. 

Children : 

i. Deborah^, bapt. at Scituate Sept. 14, 1645; came from 
Maryland to Yarmouth, Mass., and m. Paul Sears, son 
of the founder of the Sears family of Massachusetts; she 
was thus ancestor of a great number of distinguished men 
and women in the Sears and related names. But the de- 
fective records of the town of Yarmouth fail to give 
either the record of her marriage or the birth-dates of 
her children. 
12. ii. Daniel, bapt. at Scituate with Deborah, Sept. 14, 1645; 
came from Maryland to Yarmouth, Mass. 

iii. Joshua, bapt. at Scituate Nov. 2, 1645. No further record 
found. 
14. iv. Jacob, b. about 1650; beUeved to have been a son of Mr. 
George Willard. 

V. Samuel, mentioned in Maryland land record. No other 
reference to him found. In the careless writing of those 
early recorders (who wrote " Jn°" for George, as we have 
seen) perhaps ''Samuel" was a clerical error for Jacob.

He entered Harvard College ^^17-5-55/' that is, the 
17th day of July, 1655. The college books show that 
his ^ tuition, study, rents & bed-making'' were thirteen 
shillings and seven pence a quarter (about $3.38) and 
were paid in wheat, veal, lamb, hens, eggs, a small cow, 
malt, silver, etc., delivered in Cambridge by '^ Willy am 
Browne of Sudbury," ^'Captaine Mason of Watertown,'' 
and various other friends of the family who happened 
to be journeying that way. Modern express and parcel 
post had not then been developed. 

He graduated in 1659, receiving the degree of M.A., 
the only one of his class to receive more than the regular 
A.B. He was preaching at Groton in 1663, and a church 
was organized there and he was ordained minister July 
13, 1664. He continued in the work for a dozen years, 
then the Indians '^ broke up the town" and scattered 
the inhabitants in 1676, and he was compelled to seek 
a new residence and field. It seems probable that he 
was a short time at Charlestown at the time of his father's 
death. At length he was invited by the Old South 
Church, Boston, to be colleague to their pastor. Rev. 
Thomas Thatcher. He was installed March 31, 1678, 
and Mr. Thatcher's death in October following gave him 
the whole burden of the parish. He distinguished him- 
self by 'learning and great fluency of speech" (Dunton), 
and was pronounced by Rev. Mr. Pemberton to have 
been ^'a great man, a profound divine, a very consider- 
able scholar and a heavenly Christian." He was faithful 
to his church duties and also accepted the honor and 
work pressed upon him of the presidency of Harvard 
College. He had to make the journey to Cambridge 
(eight miles by road then) and spend about the amount 
of two days a week in thronging labors in the college; 
then return to resume his home cares with additional 
matters which had arisen while he was away. The strain 
was too much for him and he died at what was premature 
old age. Meantime he wrote fifty-one works, great and 
small, many reprints of sermons on striking themes. 
His chief work was the folio volume whose title describes it : 



SECOND GENERATION 17 

"A Compleat Body Of Divinity in Two Hundred and Fifty Exposi- 
tory Sections on The Assembly's Shorter Catechism Wherein The 
Doctrines of The Christian Rehgion are unfolded, their Truth con- 
firmed, their Excellence displayed, their Usefulness improved. Con- 
trary Errors & Vices refuted and expos'd. Objections answer'd, Con- 
troversies settled, Cases of Conscience resolv'd, and a great Light 
thereby reflected on the present age." 

Five hundred subscribers welcomed this work in 1726, 
nearly twenty years after the author's death, which 
shows the high esteem in which he was held. 

He took high ground against the hysterical and con- 
temptible revival here of the old-world furore against 
^'witches"; and it was consistent with his position that 
he was asked by Judge Sewall (who had been one of the 
judges that sent innocent persons to death and after- 
ward repented and wrote a full confession) to read that 
confession while the judge stood, bowed and penitent. 

Among the children whom President Willard baptized 
was one destined to have a very important part in the 
development of this nation — Benjamin Franklin. Many 
were the children and youth whose characters were shaped 
by the teaching and example of the pastor and president 
of the college. 

His death was caused by the nerve strain and prostra- 
tion which followed the cutting of his finger while eating 
oysters. So, lamented and honored, exhausted by over- 
care and mental labor, he died September 12, 1707, at 
the age of 67 years, 7 months and 12 days.

December 14, 1669; married January 8, 1690-1, Mary, 
daughter of Major Thomas and Patience (Foster) Brown, 
born November 25, 1668. 

He was a blacksmith. He Hved at Roxbury and at 
Sudbury. Residing in Sudbury he and his wife Mary sold 
land in Roxbury which he had formerly bought of John 
Weld, September 2, 1695. He died in 1705. His 
brother Daniel administered on the estate, giving bond 
December 10, 1705. Mrs. Mary Willard died at Boston, 
June 21, 1720. 

Children: 

40. i. Jonathan', b. at Roxbury June 27, 1693. 
ii. Mary, 
iii. Hannah, living in 1718, when the heirs of Major Willard 

quitclaimed their rights in the Rutland township; she

12. Daniel^ Willard {George^), born at Scituate, 
baptized with sister Deboral^, September 14, 1645; 
married at Yarmouth June 10, 1695, Esther, daughter 
of James Matthews, born there January 8, 1650-1, died 
June 28, 1726. She survived her husband and received 
a bequest of 20 shillings from Thomas Tolland, Novem- 
ber 3, 1721. 

Daniel was but a lad when he was taken by his father 
to Maryland. He remained there certainly till after his 
maturity, but the only trace of his life there is the following 
deed: 

"Daniel Willard, of Willard's purchase, heyre of George Willard, 
late of patuxent River deceased," sold to Thomas Hatton for 1700 
lbs. of tobacco, Nov. 8, 1672, 200 acres of land called Willard's pur- 
chase. [AnnapoUs, Md., Land Records, Charles Co.] 



24 WILLARD GENEALOGY 

As Daniel must have been at least fifty years old at 
the date of his marriage to Esther Matthews, it has been 
inferred that he may have married previously and perhaps 
had children, but none appeared at Yarmouth. Rev. 
John Willard, D.D., who lived somxe time at Yarmouth 
and knew people who had been acquainted with Daniel 
Willard, stated that ''he left no descendants," which 
seems to the present writer conclusive. 

He died at Yarmouth April 20, 1712. 

14. Jacob2 Willard (George^), born, as we beheve, 
about the year 1650; married at Watertown October 23, 
1677, Mary, daughter of Anthony and Grace (Hall) 
White, born there March 1, 1650. Her father made a 
bequest to her in his wdll in 1686: ''I give to my daughter 
Mary WiUard 5 shil[lings] in mony (having laid) out for 
her before 30 or 40 pounds already." 

No documentary evidence of the parentage or birth- 
place of Jacob Willard has been found. Mr. Joseph 
Willard, in the ''Memoir" gave to Jacob's descendants, 
*'The Newton Willards," a separate place, not having 
found reason to connect them with the family of Major 
Simon Willard. But there is a chain of probabilities 
which have led the editor to place Jacob and his descend- 
ants here. His age corresponds with that of George's 
children. The utter lack of any trace or suggestion of 
his origin elsewhere; the mental qualities which led him 
to become a "chirurgeon," or surgeon; the residence near 
by the Major's family, and the strong and persistent 
tradition of the progeny of Jacob that he was a scion of 
the Horsmonden stock — all these constitute probable 
evidence that has led the present writer to place Jacob 
as a son of George. 

Little is known of Jacob. He appears as "Jacob 
Wilier" in the rolls of three several companies of soldiers 
in King Philip's War, and in one roll is termed "chirur- 
gion," that is, surgeon. He was in Captain Mosely's 
Company December 10, 1675, with a credit of £13-11 
for pay. In Capt. Samuel Appleton's Company June 



i 



SECOND GENERATION 25 

24, 1676, with a credit of £15. and the title ^'chirurgion.^' 
And in Captain Henchman^s Company September 23, 
1676, credited with £12-5-8. As the companies were 
called out only for short terms he could enter one 
after the other and so be in almost continuous service. 
Another mention of the man occurs in the accounts of 
'^Chelmsford-Towne," which was credited '^By sundry 
acceptances, '' namely, ^^ Jacob Wilier per Jerathmeel 
Bowers, £02-15.'^ The exact meaning of this entry is 
not clear, but as Jerathmeel Bowers was a son of one of 
George Willard's neighbors at Scituate whence he re- 
moved to Cambridge, and was about Jacob Willard's 
age, some suggestions of interest arise. 

Jacob Willard's marriage took place soon after the 
close of the war. Then no further record of the man is 
found. Jonathan's birth is not on record, but his claim 
for the share which fell to his father in the township set 
apart for the soldiers, put in definitely — ^'Jonathan 
Willard, of Newton, in the right of his father Jacob" — 
makes the relationship clear and the name indisputable. 
Bodge, historian of King Philip's War, calls him ^^Dr, 
Jacob Willard of Newton J ^ 

It would seem that he must have died very soon after 
the birth of Jonathan, or in the latter part of the year 
1678, and that he had no other offspring. 

Child: 
41. Jonathan^, b. about 1678.

Hatch sold the land in 1733, saying it was the tract he 
bought of ^^John Willard, late of Boston, mariner." No

three hundred and fifty-three. 

He learned the trade of ^^webster," one of the crafts 
which combined in the hand-making and selling of cloth 
in those days, and from which a group of family names 
have come: shearer, carder, spinner or spinster, weaver, 
Webster, tucker, shearman, fuller, dyer, clothier, chapman 
or chipman, and mercer or merchant. 

He was one of the early settlers of Hassinamisco or

Worcester regiment; was faithful in church and highly

1748. 

Mr. Willard supphed the church at Norwich, Conn., 
a short time in September, 1716. He was settled minister 
of the church at Sunderland January 1, 1718-9, where 
he remained about three years. He sold his lands there

was about to be installed there he was slain by Indians 
in one of their swift attacks, August 14, 1723. For 
details, see ^'Willard Memoir. '^ 

His estate was settled first by his wife as administratrix, 
then by his brother Samuel Willard. 

He was a man of earnestness and devotion; beloved 
and honored by the people of his two parishes, and the

December 15, 1732, Mary, daughter of Jonadab Lord, 
who died about 1740. He married second, Dorothy, 
daughter of Richard Rogers, of York, who died Decem- 
ber 5, 1788. 

He was a cordwainer by trade and was several times 
elected by the town one of the '^sealers of leather." He 
received a gift of nine acres of land with house, barn and 
improvements, from the father of his first wife, Jonadab 
Lord, April 6, 1743. He sold the place January 16, 1760. 
He bought land and a share in a mill at the adjacent 
town of Phillipstown, afterwards incorporated as San- 
ford, Me., and settled there. He spent a short time at 
Belmont, N. H., and there a daughter was born, but 
the stay was not long. He was a useful citizen and lived

FOURTH GENERATION 47 

to a good old age. He died at Sanford, December 12, 
1792, '^aged 90 years,'^ as reported by the family. 

He left no documentary record or statement as to his 
origin; but in our survey of the Willard family at that 
period we find only one Samuel of the right age, and he 
was so situated that the history of this man follows 
naturally. One fact is of great interest, namely, that 
Rev. Samuel Willard, minister at Biddeford, Me., from 
1730 till his death, was a cousin of the Samuel, born at 
Boston in 1702, and as this Samuel had been left an 
orphan at an early age and had his way to make he 
would naturally like to settle near one so near akin and 
of such excellent standing. He had somewhere learned 
his trade, and a single entry of his name by the town 
clerk seems to imply that he had been associated with 
the Winchell family; but this has not been explored 
fully. While the ancestral connection is not absolutely 
proved by documents the probability is so large that one 
of the members of the Publishing Committee and the 
editor have come to believe thoroughly in the pedigree 
assigned, and feel that it would not be good history 
to omit it. So we believe the descendants of this 
man, Samuel Willard, of York and Sanford, Me., are 
descendants of Major Simon Willard through his second 
son, the Rev. Samuel Willard and his son Simon, of 
Boston.

130. Peleg^ Willard {Nathan'^, Thomas^, Josiah^y 
Simon^), born at Guilford, Conn., April 5, 1743; married 
Hannah . 

He removed in childhood with his father and the family 
to the adjacent town of Killingworth. His father con- 
veyed a tract of land to him December 31, 1762; part of 
this he sold to his brother Elisha September 21, 1765, 
and another tract to Gideon Carter October 3, 1798. 
In a document on record in Killingworth April 29, 1807, 
he is mentioned as ^4ate of Killingworth, deceased.'^ 
Neither the date of his marriage nor that of his death 
are yet found on record. 

He removed to Cape Elizabeth, Me., and resided there 
several years, including the period of the Revolution, 
There he had a child born who grew up and raised a 
family whose descendants are numerous in the town and 
neighborhood; another child (as believed) married and 
had children there; and a third child was born and left 
behind when the father went back to Connecticut. The 
records of the town of Cape Elizabeth show these facts. 

The archives of Massachusetts (of which Maine then 
formed a part) give the following: 

"Peleg Willard, of Cape Elizabeth, enlisted May 20, 1775, in Capt. 
Samuel Dennis' company. Col. Edmund Phinney's regiment; also, 
residing at Cape Elizabeth, he enlisted for the town of Salisbury in 



90 WILLARD GENEALOGY 

Capt. Smith's company, Col. Vose's regiment; also credited to the 
towns of Wrentham and Franklin; also reported at Valley Forge in 
December, 1777; also on pay roll of Capt. George Smith's company, 
Col. Vose's regiment." 

There was no other "Peleg Willard'' in the country at 
that period. 

He had a house in Cape EHzabeth, which he disposed 
of to the town. It would seem probable that he went 
back and forth between the town of his early residence, 
where his deeds always mention him as a resident, and 
the town of Cape Elizabeth; and his death may have 
occurred on one of his journeys, perhaps as a seaman, 
for there was much trade between the Connecticut coast 
and that of Maine. 

The silence of the records regarding his wife may indi- 
cate that she died when her youngest child was small 
and that the father failed to return after that period. 

One of the articles in the warrant for town meeting 
at Cape Elizabeth January 22, 1781, 

"To see if the town will Receive & Allow Francis Maxwell's Acco* 
for keeping Pel eg Willard's child." 

April 2, 1781, 

"Voted Mr. Francis Maxwell £15-12-0 for maintaining Joseph 
Willard a poore child & the said Maxwell then said to the town he 
would maintain said child for the future." 

The fact that Willard was a soldier explains the readi- 
ness of the town to provide for his child; the paper currency 
of the country in which the soldiers had been paid off 
had depreciated till it took five dollars to buy a pair of 
boots and ten dollars for a shirt, as the town records 
show; and those who had borne the brunt of the defence 
of the country were reduced to great straits. 

Voted in town meeting April 13, 1779, 

"That the house which Peleg Willard sold to this town be appro- 
priated for a Work house for the poor of said town."

X. Solomon, b. June 26, 1783. He became an architect of 
ability. His masterpiece was Bunker Hill Monument in 
Chariest own. Not only did he design and superintend 
the construction of that memorial shaft, but he selected 
and oversaw the quarrying and cutting of the granite at 
Quincy and constructed the railway from the quarries to 
the wharf for the shipment of the stone. Against many 
practical difficulties and contributing considerable of the 
money for materials and workmen's wages, he made the 
scheme successful. Amos Lawrence said, "Posterity 
ought to know that they are indebted more to Solomon 
Willard than to any other person for this monument." He 
refused all compensation for his services, which extended 
from 1824 to its completion in 1841. He d. unm. Feb.

Hannah (Seavey) Sheafe, born at Portsmouth, N. H., 
November 22, 1753, died March 6, 1826. 

He was graduated at Harvard College in 1765. He 
was one of the four 'Hutors" (really assistant professors) 
for six years after graduation. Meantime he pursued his 
studies for the ministry. He was then ordained pastor 
of the church in Beverly, and filled the position acceptably 
for nine years. During that time a large and rather fine 
library which had been captured by a privateer in the 
Irish Channel was brought to Salem (close by Beverly) 
and offered for sale. Mr. Willard and a number of his 
ministerial neighbors and others purchased the books and 
made them the nucleus of a public library for Beverly. 
He was also one of the incorporators of the American 
Academy of Arts and Sciences, and its first corresponding 
secretary. Thus he performed the duties of preacher

and pastor to his parishioners, and also lived a broader 
life in letters and general educational matters. It was 
not strange, therefore, that the trustees of Harvard College 
turned to him as a promising candidate for the vacancy 
occurring there, and elected him president in 1781* Dur- 
ing his presidency the number of students in the college 
increased, the standards of scholarship were raised, the 
requirements for admission were made considerably 
higher, and the course of study reached a much higher 
plane. He was himself distinguished as a classical scholar 
and was eminent in mathematics, especially in astronomy. 
He maintained good discipline, yet attached the 
students to himself. The finances of the institution also 
improved. In person he was stately, upright, dignified; 
earnest in character, he honored the position to which he 
had been called. He went on a journey to the Cape for 
his health in the autumn of 1804, and died at New Bedford 
on his way home, September 25, 1804.

SIXTH GENERATION 173 

widow of Thaddeus Frisbie. He married third, August 
10, 1809, Emma, daughter of Capt. Samuel and Lydia 
(Hinsdale) Hart, born at Berlin, Conn., February 23, 
1787, died at Troy, N. Y., April 15, 1870. Of her more 
will be said below. 

John Willard became a physician and practiced at 
Middlebury, Vt., being appointed marshal of Vermont 
by President Jackson he gave himself to public affairs. 
After his third marriage he entered with all his strength 
into his wife^s plans and co-operated with her, giving 
advice, and teaching in the school. He died May 25, 1825. 

Mrs. Emma Hart Willard was one of the largest con- 
tributors to the advance of womanly education in the 
world. Ever regarding the essential delicacy and moral 
elevation of her sex as paramount, she maintained the 
ability and propriety of girls studying what boys did 
and acquiring as ^ liberal'' education. With personal 
charms which won attention and commanded respect, she 
coupled untiring application; she made herself conspicuous 
by the excellence of her teaching at 17 years of age in 
Connecticut; won admiration in Middlebury, Vt., where 
she continued her work. Then, appealing to the New 
York legislature for an appropriation to aid the work, she 
established ^^Mrs. Willard's Seminary '^ at Troy, and 
made it a distinguished success. Her pupils were ex- 
amined by representative committees of educators; they 
demonstrated her ideas and carried the sentiment abroad. 
The many colleges for women of the twentieth century 
are only carrying out what she claimed and proved.

SIXTH GENERATION 175 

302a. GiLES^ WiLLARD {Peleg^, Nathan^, Thomas^j 
Josiah^, Simon}), born at Killingworth, Conn., about 
1764; married at Cape Elizabeth, Me., March 13, 1784, 
Dorcas Strout. 

It is not on the town records, but a matter of local 
tradition that Giles was a son of Peleg and Hannah and 
born before they removed from Connecticut. He does 
not appear to have resided long at Cape Elizabeth. 

Children, recorded at Cape Elizabeth: 

666a. i. DanieP, b. Oct. 27, 1785; m. at Cape Elizabeth May 26, 

1817, Eliza Strout. Did he settle at Bridgton, Me.?

302b. Jesse^ Willard {Peleg^, Nathan^, Thomas^, Jo- 
siah^y Simon^), born at Cape Elizabeth, Me., March 10, 
1770; was published December 14 and married Decem- 
ber 28, 1789, to Mary Dyer of the same place. 

The town record of his birth has been written over by 
some person and changed from what the editor believes 
to have been originally 1770 to what is now black and 
strong, 1760. But as deeds show that Peleg Willard 
was living at Killingworth, Conn., at that time, and this 
record affirms Cape Elizabeth as the child's birthplace, 
the under date is the more reasonable. 

Jesse Willard resided in Cape Elizabeth through his 
life. Was chosen to various town offices from 1800 to 
1814. Many descendants have resided in that town, 
Portland and other adjacent places. 

He died in April, 1828.

married May 30, 1808, Susan, daughter of Joshua and 
Susanna (Thaxter) Barker, of Hingham, born October 18, 
1782, died August 24, 1857. 

He was graduated at Harvard College in 1803; received 
the degree of Doctor of Divinity; was a Congregational 
minister, pastor of the church at Deerfield many years. 
When examined by a councilof ministers and churches 
which had been convened for his ordination, he gave 
utterance to views at variance with those held by the 
orthodox churches, and the council declined to ordain 
him. A second council was called which contained a 
majority in sympathy with his views, or who were rather 
inclined to tolerate the ^^hberal'' or ^^ Unitarian ^^ senti- 
ments which he avowed, and they inducted him into 
office September 23, 1807. He was an attractive preacher 
and man; ardent in favor of total abstinence from intoxi- 
cants and the abolition of slavery. He wrote many books 
and pamphlets. Became blind in 1819, but continued 
his ministry till his resignation was accepted in 1829. 
After a short residence at Hingham he returned to Deer- 
field, where he died October 8, 1859.

182 WILLARD GENEALOGY 

years, performing his duties with marked abihty, making 
himself of great value to the judges and lawyers through 
his extensive knowledge of law and procedure. 

In his summer vacations he sometimes went to the 
White mountains; took many long walks and in unfre- 
quented or unexplored places. Gaining the summit of 
a peak which overlooks the Notch, he was so charmed 
with the view that he had a path cut so that others might 
enjoy it; the walk grew popular and a road was opened. 
Mr. Crawford, the innkeeper, named the peak ^^ Mount 
Willard'' in his honor. 

Mr. Willard's greatest work was in the history of the 
Willard Family. For years he was gathering materials 
by examining public records and corresponding with 
persons of the name, and so on; he brought out the prin- 
cipal part of his material in the book, '^Willard Memoir,^' 
but continued to gather records and items throughout 
his life. These notes he arranged in a businesslike 
fashion, so that the present work has been started and 
carried along a good way by means of what Mr. Willard 
had prepared. The Willard family owe him a great debt 
of affection and honor. The present work does not at- 
tempt to cover the ground which he took up in his 
^'Memoir," but simply tells the same stories in a brief 
and graphic way, as for a work of reference; and all the 
family Vvdll find great satisfaction in having and reading 
the extended accounts of Major Simon Willard and Mr. 
George Willard and others which are contained in the 
''Memoir." 

Beside this family memorial Mr. Willard did a very 
fine piece of historical biography in a ''Life of General 
Henry Knox." It is to be regretted that this work was 
not published. 

He died May 12, 1865.

famous class of 1855, of which PhilUps Brooks, Robert 
Treat Paine, Frank B. Sanborn and Henry L. Higginson 
were conspicuous members. He became a lawyer like his 
father. Like him he was also a student of history, and 
had a very wide acquaintance with books; amassed a 
great library and was a "walking cyclopaedia"; versed 
in many languages, apt at quotation and remarkly astute 
in summoning laws, decisions, precedents and principles, 
so that he was valuable as a consulting attorney. He 
contributed articles to various law publications and edited 
''The American Law of Landlord and Tenant." He 
delivered a course of lectures at the Massachusetts Insti- 
tute of Technology in 1900 on Business Law. He was 
offered the position of judge of the Municipal Court of 
South Boston, but declined. He did good service on the 
Boston School Committee. He was particularly skillful 
in Probate matters and settlement of estates. His class- 
mates (1855) were very fond of him and he was most true 
to the inner circle of family and friends. He died unm.

contributed a good part to the reprinting of the "Willard

Rev. John Willakd 



SEVENTH GENERATION 313 

Iowa, 1883-1891; he was without charge at Chicago, 111., 
the rest of his life. 

He was a frequent contributor of prose and poetry to 
religious papers. He wrote a description of the celebra- 
tion of the fiftieth anniversary of his wedding, and, adding 
poems by himself and other members of the family 
written for the occasion, had the whole embodied in a 
book, ^^Mile Post Golden," which was printed for the 
family and friends. 

The Chicago Advance said of him: 

"The Rev. John Willard passed away at his home in Auburn Park, 
Chicago, 111., Monday morning, December 1, 1913, at the advanced 
age of eighty-seven years. . . . He was a fine example of the older 
New England type of evangelical piety. Accurate in scholarship, a 
clear thinker, of superior rhetorical gifts, clear cut and strong in his 
reUgious and ethical convictions, a valued counsellor, a fearless cham- 
pion of righteousness, forceful and pohshed in pulpit utterance, he 
was a Christian gentleman of the old school, and represented a type 
of culture and character that is all too rare. A conservative in the- 
ology, he possessed a mind singularly alert to the world of thought 
and fife about him, while his sense of humor and readiness at happy 
repartee, exhibited even during his last illness, will ever be lovingly 
remembered by kindred and friends. Unswerving integrity and a 
ready and tender sympathy, united in a strong personality, char- 
acterized him as disciple and minister of Jesus Christ."

He was taken into full partnership with his brother, 
Henry Augustus, who was already prospering in the 
Willard Hotel in Washington, D. C, and the brothers 
carried on one of the finest hostelries — and perhaps the 
most famous — in the country. He purchased his

Ann (Bradley) Kellogg, born at Saxtons River, Vt., Au- 
gust 17, 1831. They were married in Westminster at 
the residence of the bride's grandfather, Hon. William C. 
Bradley, a member of Congress and one of the most able 
lawyers in Vermont. She took her place in Washington, 
D. C, in quiet, home life and also in benevolent work. 
Garfield Memorial Hospital and the Industrial Home 
School were among the avenues through which she poured 
the ^^ precious ointment" of her unselfish life. Well edu- 
cated herself, she went over the lessons of her son in his 
preparatory school with him, and gave him daily letters 
during his college years. She died November 3, 1909. 

Mr. Willard had a remarkable career as a maker of 
what has sometimes been called ^'A home from home.'' 
After childhood in common school and Walpole Academy 
he helped a little while in a country store at Bellows Falls, 
Vt.; was night clerk in Chase's Hotel, Brattleboro, Vt.; 



454 WILLARD GENEALOGY 

then steward on a Hudson River steamboat; in connection 
with this he carried packages of money from banks at 
Troy to those in New York City. Through a chance 
acquaintance on the steamboat he was led to embark 
on the enterprise of leasing and running the ^'City Hotel" 
in Washington, D. C, in October, 1847. He changed 
the name in due time to ^' Willard's Hotel/' which he soon 
made famous. After five years he invited his brother, 
Joseph Clapp Willard, to join him as an equal partner, 
though without capital, and the two operated together until 
July, 1861, when they leased the establishment to Sykes, 
Chadwick & Co., and enjoyed income and leisure. Several 
years he resided at Hudson, N. Y., part or all of the year; 
but for the most of his long life he lived in Washington. 
There he renewed his active business life. He helped 
organize the National Savings and Trust Company, and 
was its second president. He organized the Columbia 
Fire Insurance Company, of which he was president and 
his son, secretary. He built the fine Willard and Kellogg 
office buildings ; continued to look after details until after 
he was eighty years old. He found time to make a col- 
lection of autographs of a remarkable character, contain- 
ing autograph letters of all the signers of the Declaration 
of Independence save one. Mr. Willard was a very strong 
supporter of the First Unitarian Church and later of All 
Souls' Church, contributing very largely to the erection 
of its fine house of worship. 

He was heartily loyal to the Union cause in the Civil 
War, and kept the Stars and Stripes flying from his hotel 
even when the flag was nowhere else seen in the city except 
on Government buildings. Was a great friend of soldiers. 

Mr. Willard was an active helper of Governor Shepherd 
in bringing about the transformation of Washington, 
which, when he went to it, was an ill-assorted, rambling 
town with wretched streets, filthy, undrained, unwhole- 
some. Through the magnificent plans and tireless energy 
of Shepherd, Willard and a few others the present city 
came into being, the pride of America and the admiration 
of the world. 



EIGHTH GENERATION 455 

Mr. Willard was concerned in the street railway, local 
banking institutions, life insurance, telephone and other 
enterprises, and was a liberal giver to the needy. 

He went with the body of his wife to his native town, 
Westminster, Vt., early in November, intending to return. 
Early in December he was taken ill, and died at the summer 
residence of his son in Walpole, N. H., December 4, 1909.

Commission and had large practical experience till the 
close of the war. He graduated M.D. in 1867 and entered 
upon practice in Philadelphia. The death of his brother 
Dwight Daniel drew heavily on his sympathies and he 
devoted his energies, in co-operation with his brother

enterprise which had been so suddenly deprived of its 
manager, and to the five little ones now orphaned. After 
years of this double work he was free to expand and push 
to success his medical and surgical work. He was pecu- 
liarly eminent in orthopaedic surgery, in which he was 
made professor by the University of Pennsylvania in

School work in the Presbyterian Church, and was a

make up for the deficiencies of early life; removed to

Sept. 28, 1839. 
V. Mary, b. in 1843; lived a sweet, aspiring life, memorialized

She d. June 8, 1862. 

FRANCES ELIZABETH WILLARD, as she wrote 
her name, was one of the most famous and useful women 
of our American history. Her statue in the rotunda 
of our national capitol marks her immense hold on the 
respect of the State of Illinois, which placed it there, 
and the country at large whose Congress accepted the 
gift in the name of the whole people. 

She inherited fine traits from both parents and did 
credit to her ancestry. She was like most children in 
play and impulsive qualities which led her into various 
little experiences along her childhood and youth; but 
early pledged herself to God and the Good, and never 
went astray. District school and boarding school did 
for her what they may do for any earnest child and 
young woman. She was a teacher at an early age and 
preceptress in more than one institution, culminating 
in the position of Dean of Women in the North Western 
University at Evanston, near Chicago, in 187L Three 
years she maintained herself in that position with credit; 
then a clash occurred between her and the faculty of the 
University as to the manner in which the student-life 
of young women should be guarded and restricted by 
their dean and her lady associates. Much as she desired 
the enlarging of woman's sphere she felt a deep sense of 
the delicacy and sacredness of the sex which made her 
opposed to anything which she believed would abandon 
young women at a critical period of their development 
to unrestricted and unchaperoned association with young 
men in the institution. She was over-ruled and resigned. 
That circumstance gave her time to attend to the great 
Women's Crusade against intoxicants; and she found 
in that cause what her whole being felt was paramount 
in social affairs. Her soul was aroused against 'Hhe 



EIGHTH GENERATION 495 

three curses, narcotic poisons (alcohol and nicotine); 
the curse of gambling; the curse of social sin, deadlier 
than all; these three part and parcel of each other.'' 
She spoke in Chicago and gained admirers; she spoke 
in Boston along with the Evangelist Moody and gained 
still more popularity; she spoke at Portland, Me., learned 
the history of the grand work which had been done 
there for years and came under the influence of Mrs. 
Stevens, and her life-work was mapped out! Her work 
is described very fully in her own autobiography, and 
in Miss Gordon's memorial volume. One circumstance 
which contributed largely to Miss Willard's preparation 
for her work as the leader of women's work was her 
two years' sojourn and travel abroad, in 1868 to 1870, 
in company with her teacher-associate. Miss Kate Jack- 
son, whose father generously paid all the expenses of 
the pair. When Miss Willard went abroad afterward 
in her lecture tour she was far more successful for that 
former life abroad. 

The Woman's Christian Temperance Union grew in 
its membership and enlarged the scope of its work through 
her official service. All its departments felt the in- 
fluence of her personality. Throughout the Northern 
and Southern States alike she carried her banner and 
gained adherents for the overthrow of the tyrant alcohol. 
The progress of the cause of prohibition since her death 
is in part the fruit of her magnificent work. As a speaker 
she was one of the finest of her sex. A lawyer in Chicago 
who had come under the power of the deadly thirst was 
asked if Miss Willard was a large woman, and replied: 
''I should think her about eight feet high and weighing 
about 400 pounds; but when she was wooing my heart 
to a better life I thought and think now she was the 
sweetest little being in the world." As a matter of fact 
Miss Willard was less than the average in height and 
weight, but had poise and dignity with persuasive manner 
that showed a soul aroused. 

She died February 18, 1898.
